you have never seen a time-lapsed video like this before. this is zurich, switzerland where a 123-year-old building was in the way. they were getting ready to put some new train tracks in. instead of demolishing the building, this he decided to move the building. this is a 5200-ton, former factory. they used two hydraulic
pressers, 500 rollers and six sections of train tracks to essentially push it about 180 feet out of the way. >> why take the time to do this? >> the current owner was going to knock it down. the people in zurich realized it had some historical significance. the citizens decided, let's ban together and keep this building in our city. >> looks like the building is just, you know, chugging it ang lo. >> that's a mobile home. >> that is a mobile home. >> thanks, guys. i know you guys have just been dying to see some highlights from the birmingham body power expo 2012. i want to point out, this is not an audition for the second version of the 1987 hit hogan's hauf. looks like these guys are about the same size. th are ofat>> i think you can p venture a guess what that sound

he is not happy. maybe he saw this guy and he saw his big, you know, luscious lionlike mane, i think. he was thinking, this guy is challenging me. he thinks he is more lion than i am. >> if i saw a lion do that, i would fall over. i would fall over and curl up in a ball. what if those glasses, the one day where at the factory, they had bad glass. >> he is just right up against the glass, challenging the lion. >> the lion is snarling at this dude. >> this lion is just a big pussy cat. >> he is mad. >> this guy is feeling off tough because of the glass. the glass disappears? >> i think a zoo worker should have came over and said, look, buddy, move it along here, you are not here to stress out our animals. >> he is just egging this -- taunting the animal on.
>> i am not going to say i wouldn't do anything different. usually, when i have gone to the zoo, the lions aren't interested in looking at anybody. they don't come to the glass and come and interact with you. this is kind of special. >> sadly, that's the end of our show. we are so glad you joined us. we will see you next time, everybody!
